Two new redevelopment projects have gone a long way in helping Balboa City rebuild over the past decade. Here are some more of the changes the city experienced.

For full resolution on all pics: Right click image + "View image." Very worth it!!

The central hospital, built in 1910, was in sore need of expansion. But with local transit routes maxed out, a new option was needed.

Room was found within the Western neighborhood Plan to build a brand new hospital.Easily accessible by mss transit, the new hospital could serve 30,000 residents.

Balboa Terrace park was nearly unchanged since it was built in 1923.

An upgrade in 2006 changed little, other than paving the paths. A new rugby field was added, however.

Just for fun, lets compare Balboa City in 1930....

Wow.  Awesome city man.  I love being able to look back at when the city was younger and how massive it is now.

Nice update! I like the construction picture for the hospital. The streets in the park are cool. Where did you pick those up?
